The Importance of Friends

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

In Sunday school, we're learning about friends. How to be a good friend, how to choose friends...stuff like that. And as I sat in Sunday school, next to my friends, I thought, I'm really blessed. I've got friends who will pray for me if I ask them to. I've got friends who love me. And I've got friends that I can talk to when I'm going through a hard time. Seriously, I've got the best friends that anyone could ask for. I know that lots of people say that, but with me, it's the truth. My friends are really lovable people. And they're just awesome. When I walk in to Youth Group, I've got people to sit next to. I've got someone to talk to. And I wonder... Am I as good a friend as my friends are? I want to be to my friends, what they are to me. Does that make sense? I love all of my friends dearly, and would give almost anything to them in a heartbeat. Do they know that? I want them to know that if there's anything they need, or if they're in trouble, to let me know; I'll do whatever I can to help them. 'Cuz I really love my friends, and they are so important to me. And I bet, as we learn about friendships on Sunday mornings, that I'll realize the importance of my friends even more. So, here's to all my great, awesome, amazing friends. You guys are the best.
